Valentino Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2017-18 Show

with No Comments

Haute Couture expresses a sacred notion, meant to be perceived as something that oversteps reality. Haute Couture revealing the finest craftsmanship of the Atelier and the magical atmosphere of the Fall/Winter 2017-18 fashion show.
Collection by Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli is a liturgy made of colors and density, a research of harmony in the dissonance that reaches its climax in the absolute black. Forms simplify, signs dress and communicate following a new idea of dressing. Immediate, but thought after, it reveals its identity with each layer: the solemn cape that embraces, the modest hood that veils, sensual openings that reveal.

The seven capital vices – pride, envy, greed, wrath, gluttony, sloth and lust – are condensed in objects that are both symbolic and of use: minaudière bags created in collaboration with artist Harumi
Klossowska de Rola. In each vice, an animal has been identified, in a composite and multicultural iconography that renews the connection between man and nature conveying a positive message. The vices are, as a matter of fact, instinctive risks in human nature. Representing them through animals transfigures its value, bestowing them their opposite worth.
